Glenn shared a little of his back story in The Walking Dead #5, on page 11, when the group of survivors he was with shared their stories with new arrival Rick Grimes while sitting around a campfire.
Glenn told them: "I was a . . . pizza delivery boy in Macon, Georgia. I was swimming in debt and would've given anything to get out of it. . . Thing is. . . Now that it's all gone. . . I'd gladly take it all back if everything could go back to normal. I mean. . . Who wouldn't really? But I was in bad shape. About to lose my apartment. . . My car. . . I was going to have to bite the bullet and go crawling back to my parents for help. I never wanted to talk to them again. Heh. . . Now that I know I couldn't talk to them if I wanted to. . . I kinda want to."
BELOW: Hershel Greene is furous when he finds his 19-year-old daughter in bed with Glenn: Hershel Greene is portrayed as a fairly religious man, one of the most overtly religious characters thus far in "The Walking Dead" series. He has been generous to Rick Grimes' and his band of zombie apocalypse survivors in allowing them to stay on his property and in his family's home. It is not surprising that he is furious when he finds his daughter in bed with a member of Rick's group.
Hershel: Maggie, I-- What the hell are you doing?!
Glenn: Oh, sir! Uh... I really didn't want--your daughter and I-- We-- I'm sorry!
Hershel: Not yet you aren't!
Maggie: Daddy-- No!
Hershel: And you! What have you done, Maggie? Lacey, Arnold, and Shawn haven't been in the ground twenty-four hours and you're doing this? You make me sick!
Maggie: Glenn and I are in love, Daddy. I wanted to tell you before but I just couldn't! We love each other and there's nothing you can do about that. I'm nineteen! I'm old enough to do whatever I want! He slept here last night because I asked him to. I--I just... I've never slept alone in this room before! I couldn't-- Not with Lacey gone. I needed somebody to be here.
